Final Cut Pro 6 Video Tutorial – Editing Basics 08: Importing Video (5) – Windows Media Video






Over the next several days, we are going to release several or up to a dozen video tutorials for Apple’s Final Cut Pro 6. This series is intended for those who have just started using Final Cut Pro 6 without prior experience in digital video editing and need some guidance. We, MacHouse, edit more than 200 videos each year, using Apple Final Cut Pro. So we can help you.

This Final Cut Pro 6 video tutorial series is for offline editing. That is, we assume that all video clips are stored on a hard disk drive. So we don’t import videos from video cameras.

In order to play back Windows Media Video movies with QuickTime, you need a QuickTime component called Flip4Mac from Telestream. And if you want to produce WMV movies with QuickTime, you need one of the retail versions of Flip4Mac. If we want to import WMV files to Final Cut Pro, then which version do we need? Can we edit WMV files with Final Cut Pro and also export projects with Windows Media Video?

The 8th installment of the Final Cut Pro 6 video tutorial series involves Windows Media Video. We want to find out the best way of importing and handling WMV with Final Cut Pro.
